T1 Speedtest


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys, always wondered if anyone had any speedtest results of a T1 connection, out of interest I just want to see how it compares to broadband/fibre these days

BT FTTP Installed June 2016, 74Mbps down, 20Mbps up.

We don't have T1 lines in the UK (~1.5Mbit/s). Our equivalent is an E1 (2 Mbit/s).
Less with overheads. Slow by superfast standards

Has E1 been used as connections in offices in the UK or is it just backhaul for mobile sites?

I had a few mates who had T1 about 15 years ago in Sweden, never heard of the since then.

E1 lines are used for numerous connections from office point to point , ISDN 30, business VOIP , mobile base station backhaul and more besides. Their use is being overtaken by cheaper xdsl services or faster Ethernet circuits

Cheers for replying though smile

I used to have an E1 to my desk when I worked for an ISP for test purposes back in 1998. Yes, they existed but are now effectively obsolete due to faster technology being available at lower prices. You do get higher guaranteed availability and quicker fixes with a leased line than you do with DSL services.

My Broadband is now slightly faster than a E1 line.

It was around 1.6 - 1.9 Mbps, now around 4.3 Mbps.

Happy and sad at the same time!!!



BT ADSL customer getting 4.1 Mbps (0.9 Mbps up) on a new road / new build development
CAB not FTTC enabled, not part of the 66% commercial plan. Not a BDUK area. Hoping the council will let VM in-fill!

Only faster on download. I bet you're way slower on upload as an E1 is a symmetrical service.
